As far as Italian sports fans are concerned, Ferrari made the right choice in signing Fernando Alonso for the future.

It is a well-known secret that the Spaniard has inked a deal to move to the Maranello team either in 2011 or (depending on Kimi Raikkonen) even next year.

A survey conducted by La Gazzetta dello Sport claims the 27-year-old is the driver most Italian fans want Ferrari to put into a red car.

Alonso captured nearly 42 per cent of the total vote, ahead of Robert Kubica (24.6%), Felipe Massa (16.8%) and Kimi Raikkonen (8.9%).

Of the five drivers cited, Lewis Hamilton netted the lowest percentage of the vote, with 8.2 per cent.
